Carver County Marriages


Information on Carver County:

In March of 1855, Carver County was organized by the Minnesota Territorial Legislature.  The original county seat was San Francisco Township but in 1856 voters moved it to Chaska.  Much of the east central part of Minnesota, including Carver County, was covered by the Big Woods; a dense forest of oak, elm, maple and cottonwood trees. The density of the Big Woods made it difficult for early settlers to clear the land for farming.
